Getting to know the Canso Canal

As we sail toward Charlottetown in Prince Edward Island, we’ll navigate through the Strait of Canso.. This strait is located in the province of Nova Scotia and divides the Nova Scotia peninsula from Cape Breton Island. It is a long thin channel approximately 16 and a half miles long and averaging almost 2 miles wide (0.62 miles at its narrowest).

The strait connects the Chedabucto Bay on the Atlantic Ocean to St. George’s Bay on the Northumberland Strait, a sub basin of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

What to See

Get ready with your camera to capture the landscapes and when the bridge over the canal swings open to let the M/V Victory II pass through.

More about the Canso Canal…

The strait is crossed by the Canso Causeway for vehicular and rail traffic, opened in 1955. The Canso Canal allows ships to pass through the causeway, and this can accommodate any vessel capable of transiting the St. Lawrence Seaway.
